Will you be so good as write a word of answer to the enclosed Letter, just received here; which proceeds upon the “Trades' Sale” hypothesis! That surely was a most astonishing solution,—which I am greatly obliged to Mr F.1 for proposing to you!—

I suppose Mr Forster has told you that the Book on Heroes lies ready here for Robson's Boy (since you are so obliging as to adopt Robson), and that we will choose the cheap edition (of 1250 was it not?) as the preferable.

I am very glad my Books [are] safe in you hands. One of these days, perhaps today itself if I can get so far, I mean to call at No 186,2 and adjust one or two little things.

Yours most obedt /

T. Carlyle
